Needham Massey


Needham Massey, according to a deed in Houston Co., Ga. was in Jones Co., Ga. on 6-13-1823, still there on 12-22-1825 but had moved to Houston Co., Ga.[before Macon Co. was formed] by September 11, 1827 when he purchased Land Lot No. 45 in the 8th Dist. of Houston Co., Ga. where the house that he built in 1827, where he raised his children, where his wife died, he remarried, he died and is buried on this lot.
Needham Massey's brother, Warren B. Massey witnessed a deed with Needham on 10-15-1827. They are both in the1830 Houston Co., Ga. census. Warren is probably buried in the Massee Family Cemetery on Lot 45/8th but there is no marker now. I have been told by a fellow who lived on the next farm over for many, many years, that when he was growing up, that was a big cemetery with lots of markers. Today there are only two.
